Montage of coverts of 7 books in a strip: Demon Copperhead Hungry Ghosts The Apparition Phase The Secret History The Seven Moons Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow You Have a Friend in 10A
According to my Books page, I read 43 books last year, three less than the year before year. A list of 5 star books (weight by my enjoyment, pretty vague) using the lovely display posts plugin.

I guess I will have to start playing.
One of the interesting aspects to having two sites is running two different setups. I still use the Classic Editor Plugin for my Collect blog and have started tinkering with Gutenberg in my main blog. I find blocks really cumbersome and appreciate Tony Hirst’s sentiments. I actually often carve out my posts in my Collect blog and copy the contents across, but the translation to blocks can be rather frustrating. On top of that, I am not sure where it leaves Post Kinds, which I guess is the point Ton Zijlstra is trying to make.
The RSS feed from Glow Blogs is not optimised for podcasts so I used Feedburner to create one. You need a google account to set up on Feedburner. Once you have done that you add your RSS feed from your blog to Feedburner and tick the podcast box.
I am again reminded about the technical debt in using IndieWeb technologies on this blog without the full understanding of what is going on.
I recently went looking for where I changed the footer of my blog to update the images. Spent thirty minutes looking. Gave up.
I am still glad I do it, but I do sometimes worry. On the positive side, it really helps with my work in supporting others and thinking of what questions to consider. Also highlights the importance of clear documentation.
This has me thinking about Chris Aldrich’s recent reference to blogrolls and OPML files. I wonder if something could be added to be able to search across the various sites listed on your own site?

Perhaps not necessarily ‘lost’ John, but as @claganach implied, decidedly harder to find?
I guess few folks make much use of the ‘archiving’/cataloguing’ features such as Moments & Bookmarks? And Liking of course seems to have been repurposed from Favoriting. 🤔

One thing I wonder about sharing spaces is not what is technically possible – Twitter actually includes quite a few features to help users, such as hashtags, saved searches, bookmarks and moments to name a few – the question is how easy is it to personally mine this information and subsequently build upon it? This was the point that both Cal Newport and Austin Kleon have recently touched upon, sharing the power of a space of one’s own.
Gif the dub is a toy that mashes up gifs from giphy and sounds from freesound.
You can’t teach someone to swim while they’re drowning.
Certainly does sound exhausting.
In regards to space, I sometimes have the assistant principal trying to touch base with everyone and Ms 9 on WebEx. I am grateful that it is not yet winter over hear therefore allowing me to be able to setup in our alfresco when needs be.

I think that you have touched upon my only concern/frustration with Micropub/sub Readers. They do not seem to populate Response Proporties box. Although it is far from ideal, I prefer to populate these and even add my own custom quote. I also lose control over the headings associated with responses, listens, likes etc … I agree to this as a standard, but there is a part of me that likes having a heading and an emoji to go with this. Each to there own I guess. My dream would be to be able to decide what fields are available, like a custom client that matches up with the various microformats.
